Wolf’s Dragoons – Examples of the Use of the Word Unity

I really just wrote this up as a chance to show off my new dice puck for Wolf’s Dragoons
Sweet metal dice of doom!

As we approach the era of the ilClan, I thought I’d share a funny little primer I made.  In writing about Wolf’s Dragoons in Divided We Fall, I researched the word ‘unity’ that the Dragoons toss around so casually.  So, for grins, here are the accepted contexts and meanings of the word in use in fiction (totally unauthorized and non-canon):

Dismay                                             For Unity’s sake! 
Curse                                UNITY!
Death of an enemy                                                  Uni-ity!  (read with a little sing-song – ask the guys on WolfNet Radio)
Threat                                                                        We are going to get all-unity on this guys ass. 
Family/Team                                                             Seyla!  Unity!
Acknowledgement of desperate plight                Unity.  Yeah, you bet your ass unity. 
WarningLet’s open a can of unity on these guys.
ExhaustionTired?  Me too.  Unity…
Preparing to rush into battleI’m about to shove a lot of unity down this guy’s throat!
We’re screwedOh – Unity!
Dealing with an idiotThis guy doesn’t get unity. 
Ordering another beerAnother round down here…Unity!!
ConfusionWhat the unity is going on here?
AgreementYou bet your ass unity!
StressWhat in the unity is going on here?
OutsidersYou don’t get unity.  That’s a Dragoon thing.
Let’s kill these guysUNITY!!!
Misuse of the word unityYou don’t know unity the way I know unity.

  1. Cool dice! I definitely need to catch up on what the Dragoons are up to in these new post-Jihad periods. For years I understood that they’d been casually destroyed in the slate-wipe that came with the Dark Ages, so I’d ignored everything from the Jihad onwards. The more I read of your blog and see the new novels coming out, the more I think it’s definitely time to get back into more recent events, so thanks for getting me interested in the new age of BattleTech.
